Jared Goff wants the NFL to ‘keep putting us in primetime’

USA Today

The Detroit Lions seized another victory on a Thursday night, beating the Packers in Green Bay, 34-20. It was the second Thursday night victory in the first four weeks of the season for Dan Campbell’s Lions.

After the victory, Lions quarterback Jared Goff spoke with Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network about the impressive win. Standing in front of a raucous group of Lions fans still in the stand nearly 45 minutes after the game ended, Goff savored the moment and the accomplishment a little.


Goff talked about shaking off “a bad play by me,” an interception on the game’s opening drive that led to a Green Bay field goal and an early 3-0 lead.

“We’re a really resilient group and I try to lead the charge on that,” Goff said. “When things go bad, how do you respond and get better on the next play?”

Garafolo then noted that the Lions were traditionally the “Sunday one-o’clock team,” one not worthy of the bright lights and big stage of the national broadcasts. He asked Goff if the veteran QB liked the changing into a team that has won three games in primetime in the last five overall games they’ve played, dating back to Week 18 of last season.

“We like it,” Goff said. “Keep putting us in prime time if you want. We feel good.”
